Bolts Buzz: Where Does Joey Bosa Rank Among ESPN's Top Edge Rushers?

210707-BB-CP

Jeremy Fowler recently wrote an article "Ranking the NFL’s top 10 edge rushers for 2021" (subscription required). The Chargers' Joey Bosa came in at No. 3 on the list. Here is what Fowler wrote:

"Pass-rush purists love Bosa, and that showed in the voting. Some who preferred singular athletes such as Garrett were a bit lower on Bosa, while those who prioritize technique love him.

"Best technician in the NFL -- great short-area speed, best hands," one NFL personnel evaluator said.

The game's highest-paid pass-rusher at $27.5 million per year, Bosa had another tremendous season, putting up a 24.9% pass-rush win rate (fifth in the league). He created 26 incompletions, fourth best among edge rushers, though he didn't match his peers in double-team effectiveness (five wins on 64 attempts, 7.8%).

"He's a load," an NFL veteran offensive lineman told me. "His ability to create leverage makes for a long day.""
